At the last meeting of the Parish Council, it discussed applying to The Woodland Trust for free trees to plant in the community. The Council would apply for what is termed a “small copse” which comprises 10 trees each of silver birch, rowan and wild cherry and would probably plant them on the village green in Chapel Chorlton. We considered planting half of them at the point of the green and half of them close (but not too close) to the former BT phone box.
The Council would be pleased to receive comments on these proposals – please contact Jan, our clerk, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 07563660298.
In response to concerns raised by the local community in Hill Chorlton, a Speed Indicator Device (SID) has been installed in Hill Chorlton. Community members are already noting a reduction in speed through the village.
The Parish Council is hoping to finance a further SID at the other end of the village and is looking to work in partnership to provide a further device in the Stableford area.
Chapel and Hill Chorlton Parish Council would like to thank Eccleshall First Responders, Stableford caravan park and County Councillor Paul Northcott for all of their help and support with the above project. The defibrillator is now in place and operational in the adopted BT telephone box by the village green in Chapel Chorlton.
There have been two training sessions but more are anticipated later on in the year.
